Clustering Goal: Group objects into meaningful subclasses as part of an exploratory process to insight into data or as a preprocessing step for other algorithms. Porpoise Beluga Sperm Fin Sei Cow Giraffe Clustering Strategies Hierarchical Partitioning k-means Density Based Density Based clustering requires a distance metric between points and works well on high dimensional data and data that forms irregular clusters.

DBSCAN: Density Based Clustering MinPts = 3 a b c d  a b c d   A core object has at least MinPts in its  -neighborhood. An object p is directly density-reachable from object q if q is a core object and p is in the  - neighborhood of q. An object p is in the  -neighborhood of q if the distance from p to q is less than . An object p is density-reachable from object q if there is a chain of objects p 1, …, p n, where p 1 = q and p n = p such that p i+1 is directly density reachable from p i. An object p is density-connected to object q if there is an object o such that both p and q are density-reachable from o. A cluster is a set of density-connected objects which is maximal with respect to density- reachability. Noise is the set of objects not contained in any cluster.

OPTICS: Density-Based Cluster Ordering OPTICS generalizes DB clustering by creating an ordering of the points that allows the extraction of clusters with arbitrary values for . The core-distance is the smallest distance  ’ between p and an object in its  -neighborhood such that p would be a core object. The reachability-distance of p is the smallest distance such that p is density-reachable from a core object o. The generating-distance  is the largest distance considered for clusters. Clusters can be extracted for all  i such that 0   i  . MinPts = 3 ’’ Reachability Distance This point has an undefined reachability distance.  1 OPTICS(Objects, e, MinPts, OrderFile): 2 for each unprocessed obj in objects: 3 neighbors = Objects.getNeighbors(obj, e) 4 obj.setCoreDistance(neighbors, e, MinPts) 5 OrderFile.write(obj) 6 if obj.coreDistance != NULL: 7 orderSeeds.update(neighbors, obj) 8 for obj in orderSeeds: 9 neighbors = Objects.getNeighbors(obj, e) 10 obj.setCoreDistance(neighbors, e, MinPts) 11 OrderFile.write(obj) 12 if obj.coreDistance != NULL: 13 orderSeeds.update(neighbors, obj) 1 OrderSeeds::update(neighbors, centerObj): 2 d = centerObj.coreDistance 3 for each unprocessed obj in neighbors: 4 newRdist = max(d, dist(obj, centerObj)) 5 if obj.reachability == NULL: 6 obj.reachability = newRdist 7 insert(obj, newRdist) 8 elif newRdist < obj.reachability: 9 obj.reachability = newRdist 10 decrease(obj, newRdist)

A steep downward point is similarly defined. A steep upward area is a region from [s, e] such that s and e are both steep upward points, each successive point is at least as high as its predecessors, and the region does not contain more than MinPts successive points that are not steep upward. A cluster: Starts with a steep downward area Ends with a steep upward area Contains at least MinPts The reachability values in the cluster are at least t% lower than the first point in the cluster. 1 HierachicalCluster(objects): 2 for each index: 3 if start of down area D: 4 add D to steep down areas 5 index = end of D 6 elif start of steep up area U: 7 index = end of U 8 for each steep down area D: 9 if D and U form a cluster: 10 add [start(D), end(U)] to set of clusters  Core Distance Reachability
